Zanaco coach Numba Mumamba has described Saturday’s opening day draw in the 2017 FAZ Super Division as a fair start to the season.
The defending champions came from behind to finish 1-1 at home against Red Arrows at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.
Bruce Musakanya put Arrows ahead in the 19th minute but Zanaco captain Ziyo Tembo equalized five minutes later to see the two sides share the spoils.
However, the result saw Zanaco with just one win and a defeat from their opening six competitive games in 2017 in which they have scored a miserable three goals, something Numba admitted is of great concern.
“We have managed to get to a goal which is good enough for the team but we just have to keep working on our finishing because that is the area we are lagging behind,” Numba said.
“Otherwise, we just have to keep pushing this is just the first game and I think a draw is not bad enough for us.”
Meanwhile, Zanaco travel to Green Eagles in Week 2 on April 15 who opened their 2017 season account with a 1-0 away victory over promoted City of Lusaka in the lunchtime kickoff at Heroes Stadium.
